Pests: ‘Natural deterrents’ to get rid of slugs and snails – ‘they’ll struggle to move’

James Partridge at Greenshop said: “While you might think of slugs and snails as greedy predators feasting on your veg patch, it’s important to remember that these pesky bugs are also pretty for lots of other garden wildlife, including birds, frogs, toads, hedgehogs and even carpet beetles.

“So, by encouraging more of these creatures to visit your garden, you can control slugs and snails naturally.”

The expert recommended using a feeder or a bird table with some seed or nut mix.

Ponds are also a great way to attract frogs and toads.
